In conclusion, Stalin was not a saviour of USSR. In order to achieve his goals, he had killed many innocents. Although he was able to improve the economy of USSR, the lives of the 20 million people was too much.
The cartoon shows the plans of Stalin for rapid industriliasation in Russia. It shows that there would be a strong military with tanks and an airforce. There would also be proper machinery for the people. People in Russia would also be happy.
The five-year plans were designed to rapidly industrialise the Soviet Union. Enough food would be produced and more efficient machinery would be used. Heavy industries such as coals ,iron and steel would be developed. Roads, railways and airports would be built throughout Russia, hoping to revolutionize transport between Japan and Europe. Books would be developed quicker and cheaper as well.
Stalin attempted to develop agriculture through the implementation of collectivisation. Mechanisation provided by the state such as tractors were used in kolkoz farms.
The political cartoon shows how fearful people were towards Stalin. Stalin was rounding up suspects and executing them, claiming betrayal as the reason. Even his subordinates were afraid of Stalin and only quietly did his bidding. This cartoon strongly emphasizes on how effective The Great Terror was. With the constant killings, Stalin was then able to gain absolute power.
The video shows what Stalin would do to the citizens of Russia then in order to achieve his goals. One such situation of Stalin is that he disregarded the safety and welfare of the citizens or workers when they were forced into a massive construction. There was not enough food to feed the workers and construction was on going despite the freezing weather.
In order to be the unchallenged leader of both party and state, Josef Stalin killed an approximate of 20 million people, including those who were loyal to him. He switched between the moderates and radicals, framing and expelling those who had opposed him. This was done to ensure that he gains absolute power. He also proceeded to purge the entire country with arrests and executions. Millions of innocent soviet citizens were killed in the end.
